CYBERSEC is one of the leading conferences on strategic cybersecurity and cyber policy issues in Europe, organised by the Kosciuszko Institute since 2015. Throughout its six years of history, CYBERSEC has partnered with important international institutions such as NATO, European Commission and European Parliament and has organised 11 editions of CYBERSEC Forums in Europe (Warsaw, Kraków, Katowice and Brussels) and in the United States (Washington). I was involved in several editions of Cybersec  as a communication advisor, conference emcee, and a reporter.
